  3. i. describe the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of essential and commonly used drugs
  4. ii. list the indications, contraindications, interactions and adverse reactions of commonly used drugs
  5. iii. indicate the use of appropriate drug in a particular disease with consideration of its cost, efficacy and safety for : individual needs,
  6. iv describe the pharmacokinetic basis, pharmacotherapy of common poisonings
  7. Integrate the list the drugs of addiction and recommend the management
  8. vi. Write the prescription for common emergency clinical disorders.
  9. vii. Explain pharmacological basis of prescribing drugs in special medical situations such as pregnancy, lactation, infancy and old age
